L.A. Not So Confidential

Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter (Morrow), author Tom Franklin’s atmospheric tale of Southern sadness and racial confusion, was given the nod in the Mystery/Thriller category during this weekend’s handing out of the Los Angeles Times Book Prizes. Fittingly enough, the presenter in that category was Attica Locke, whose 2009 debut novel, Black Water Rising, covered similar ground.

The other books and authors nominated in the Mystery/Thriller category were: Tana French, Faithful Place (Viking); Laura Lippman, I’d Know You Anywhere (Morrow); Stuart Neville, Collusion (Soho Press); and Kelli Stanley, City of Dragons (Thomas Dunne/Minotaur)
